Earlier this week Lord Finesse blamed Rostrum Records for the $10 million lawsuit he filed against Mac Miler, and now the label is fighting back. In a statement to Hip-Hop Wired, the imprint  accused Finesse of deceiving the public. “There have been a lot of misstatements online and in the press, so we thought it'd be best to make some brief comments,” said the label. “First and foremost, we stand by Mac Miller in this situation and we will fight the case together with him.

“Mac never pretended that the ‘Hip 2 Da Game' beat was his, despite what's being said in the suit.  Lord Finesse was given credit on both the video and the mixtape from the very beginning.  We've never distributed 'Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza' for sale on iTunes and have consistently policed digital retailers and other sites to make sure that no pirates were ever illegally selling the song.

“Lord Finesse has known about ‘Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza' for a long time and never objected to the use.  For some reason, he has very recently changed his mind. We look forward to resolving this issue soon, and we appreciate all of the support that we have been receiving from the entire music community.”

Finesse has yet to release a rebuttal to the record label's claims, but he expressed disappointment with Miller for making his own statement via Twitter. Looks like this situation won't be settled anytime soon.
